Non-profit grant request goes to Door County Board for approval

Some of your favorite non-profits could receive a much-needed boost in funding if the Door County Board of Supervisors moves forward with a plan to award over $263,000 in grants. Nine non-profits across Door County could benefit from the over $263,000 slated to be awarded, ranging from $9,880 to United Way Stride to increase the number of mental health counseling hours available in the school systems to nearly $21,000 for Door County Habitat for Humanity to assist 12 families who fell behind in their mortgage payments due to the pandemic. The only issue is the final amount is over the $200,000 American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds initially allocated to the program. The Door County Finance Committee gave its blessing for the awards earlier this week. The additional $63,871 will come from the $1.2 million in ARPA funds allocated to the Door County Health and Human Services Department. The department’s director, Joe Krebsbach, said last week that he believes these funds will do much good in the community.

The Door County Board will also discuss staffing changes at the Door County Sheriff’s Department and Door County Emergency Management and Communication Department and the end of the COVID-era supplemental paid leave program when it meets on December 20th at 10 a.m.
